I dont know whether I want to contribute to writing such a library, but I am
looking into it.
It wouldnt be 'just' for commercial puposes. Also it is a difficult challenge.
like climbing a mountain.
It could potentially profit the developers in form of books and teaching, though
it would be a long term project and there is no guarantee!.
